frustrating, i got angry. i was so very passionate, following what happened at sandy hook, as we all were. and my position on what should be done about gun control, i've been advocating for a long time. so this to me was a tipping point. and to hear them continue to espouse this, you cannot touch any guns philosophy, i found very frustrating. with alex jones, i took a different tact. my tact was to try and show that i could be a listener, that i would give him the time to explain, articulate his position, but instead, he didn't want to debate anything or discuss it. but i found it illuminating that during his rant, you got a real sense of what an element of the more extreme gun activists in this country genuinely believe. they believe that their government will perform as a sort of tyranny and overthrow them or try to, and that is why they all need to be heavily armed. and that's what he believes. that's what his followers, to his pretty well-listened to show believe. and i think sometimes, you have to give people just enough rope to tie themselves into a large, pretty unedifying not. and

. sandy and i, from the onset, have not been focused on the shooter. we're going to let the justice system deal with him. we trust that. fortunately we don't have any hatred toward him. he is a troubled soul. and our main goal now is to try to prevent further atrocities, massacres, by doing something in the legislature to prevent these massacres from occurring over and over and over again. >> yes. yes. i understand you're going to washington, sir, tomorrow to meet with the vice president. what do you hope to accomplish? >>i hope to put a face and some emotion into the appeal to the american people to please not be apathetic toward this problem that our country has, and let's do something about some sensible gun laws, and to tell the american people that we do not want to take guns away. i have a shotgun to protect my home. i don't plan on giving it up. but i would like to see assault weapons, high capacity magazines, background checks, those three factors, if we could get something done, i think we would be going a long way as a country to improve what we're facing now with these massacres
